Reduce the visual impact of your Android screen with f.lux

With this development it is possible to achieve that the amount of Blue light that emits the screen of the Android device is reduced, so using this development with one of these (such as a tablet before going to sleep), affects much less when it comes to sleeping later. That is to say, it matches what some Amazon models already offer, specifically from its Fire range.

First of all, it is important to know that in order to use f.lux, it is necessary to have the Android terminal rooted (unprotected), so that in this way the development can access the necessary sections to change the emissions produced by the screen. If you want to get the job we are talking about, you can do it with the image that we leave behind this paragraph and, in addition, you do not have to pay for it.

Simple f.lux operation

The truth is that using development does not have any complications, since once f.lux is executed and the configuration sections are established, the work simply does its work at the moment in which it is activated using a slider. No more actions to take. By the way, it is positive to indicate that programming options are included (so that, at night, the Blue Light reduction is always activated).

F.lux interface for Android

And how does f.lux work? Well, in a fairly simple way: modify the color displayed on the panel of the Android terminal by reducing the blues and increasing the amount of red and green (so much more “hot” tones are seen). In this way, the visual impact is reduced and the user when going to sleep does not have the problems that have been detected due to Blue Light.

The truth is that when you try it, it is evident that it works and, therefore, giving f.lux a try does not hurt. In addition, being a development gratuitous the appeal is even greater. A detail to assess: the work is still in a test version, so it is possible that when a final development is reached, there are more options and that it works even better.
